Google Trends … What?

I just thought I’d pop over to Google Trends to see what are the Hot Topics of the day and catch up with the latest going’s on, thinking that it would be all about the royal wedding or maybe some celebrity, but have been left kind of confused.

The only one that is kind of relevant is Gillian McKeith as she’s apparently been really annoying in I’m a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here, but the rest seem to be infiltrated from the other side of the pond.

How to Get a Surge in Traffic

There are many ways to get a surge in traffic but recently I have been doing a test to see how much traffic I could gain for a topical search term – “When do the Clocks go Back”.

I did a post on the 6th September following previous “clock related” posts that I had done in the past that I had seen an nice uplift of traffic from. Its surprising just how many people are out there searching for this information and you can definately see a peak in traffic the weekend before the clocks actually went back in the UK.
